Incredible Hazard deserves Real chance – Zola

first_imgEden Hazard is an “incredible” talent that deserves the opportunity to test himself at Real Madrid, says Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola.The Belgium international forward has completed a €100 million (£90m/$114m) transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu.Hazard had made no secret of his desire to take in a spell with the Blancos are seven productive years at Stamford Bridge. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Zola, who worked with the 28-year-old as assistant manager to Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea in 2018-19, believes one of the finest players on the planet will continue to flourish with La Liga giants.He told AS: “Madrid have bought a fantastic player.“This year he was incredible. And as a person, that’s how he is too. Chelsea lost a key player and Madrid have gained one.“I wish him all the best and that it goes as well at Madrid as it did at Chelsea. That’s what he deserves.“It will go well. His ability doesn’t allow for any doubts. La Liga will be good for him.“This year, he learned a lot and improved, learned to play more with the team, improved his passing. I think he’ll do well.”Eden Hazard Chelsea 2019Madrid are looking for inspiration and leadership on the back of a forgettable season last time out and Zola believes that Hazard will bring both of those qualities to the fold.He added: “Last year, he was very good for us and he participated in close to 40% of the goals. Not just scoring but assisting too. He was really good, his numbers were incredible too.“Some leaders speak a lot in the dressing room, on the field and others do it with actions contributing important things in games, deciding big games. He is a great player for Madrid.”Hazard will be charged with the task of helping to fill the void at Real created by the 2018 departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.That expectation will pile added pressure on him, but Zola believes the Belgian will thrive if he continues to play the game that comes “naturally” to him.Quizzed on what advice he would offer to Hazard, the Italian icon said: “The best advice I can give is to keep doing what he has been doing. The rest will come.“We had many debates about football and he always told me that he performs better when he is having fun, that his best arrives when he is enjoying himself.“I hope he enjoys it at Madrid. If he does, the rest will happen naturally.”last_img read more

A New School Is Believed To Be The Favorite For Country’s No. 1 Recruit

first_imgKayvon Thibodeaux runs drills in a campThe No. 1 recruit in the country has yet to make a decision on where he’ll be playing college football. That’s not expected to change anytime soon, either. He reportedly doesn’t plan on making a decision until late in the summer.Where do things stand schools-wise with five-star Kayvon Thibodeaux? 247Sports has a new update.USC is believed to be the favorite to land the stud defensive lineman, but that might be changing, according to a new report.There’s now a new favorite, according to 247Sports’ recruiting guru Steve Wiltfong, and a couple of other schools are in the mix, too. Florida State now might be the frontrunner to land the five-star, according to Wilftong.Here’s the latest:A 6-foot-5, 235-pound pass-rushing force that lives in Thousand Oaks, California, Thibodeaux’s made visits to Oregon, Florida State and Alabama this summer. It’s important to also note that Thibodeaux (as you can tell from the last name) is originally from Lake Charles, Louisiana, and has visited LSU. That said, he’s said in the past that location isn’t really a factor in his decision. Right now the 247Sports Crystal Ball is heavily in favor of USC at 73 percent, with FSU (13%) and LSU (7%) trailing. However, things might be shifting in his recruitment. Thibodeaux said earlier this year that he’d like to make a “late-summer” commitment.Wiltfong’s Read: “I’m hearing Florida State may be the leader for him with Oregon and LSU firmly in it. USC is obviously the Crystal Ball favorite and they’re not going to go away, but the feel is the other three right now.” (Read more of Wiltfong’s thoughts on Thibodeaux’s recruitment here).Thibodeaux is one of the biggest recruits college football has seen in years. He’s an instant-impact player for whoever lands him.Stay tuned.last_img read more

Sinotrans Shippings Privatization Delayed

first_imgzoomIllustration; Image Courtesy: PxHere under CCO license /Public Domain Hong Kong-based shipping company Sinotrans Shipping Limited informed in a regulatory filing on Thursday, October 18, that its privatization plans have been delayed.The reason behind the delay is the need for more time to define the details of the scheme document and proposal for the privatization by Sinotrans Shipping (Holdings) Limited. The proposal was due on October 18.“As more time is required for finalizing the scheme document and to accommodate the timetable of the High Court, the company has applied to the executive, and the executive has granted its consent, to extend the date of dispatch of the scheme document to a date no later than 20 November 2018,” the company revealed in a regulatory statement.The privatization plans emerged in September this year when Sinotrans Shipping Holdings proposed a scheme of arrangement and withdrawal of the company’s listing.The move is being pursued on the back of a merger between Sinotrans & CSC Holdings and China Merchants Group finalized last year.Operating through three shipping segments, Sinotrans Shipping currently has a fleet of more than 50 bulkers, containerships and tankers, according to VesselsValue’s data.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Communications Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the government has inherited legacy issues and steps are being taken to make BSNL more competitive. “To ensure stability in the Telecom sector, one PSU is very important,” Prasad told the house, adding that it must be noted that India has the cheapest mobile and data rates across the world.

Meanwhile, in his written reply, the minister said, “Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has informed that no proposal to lay off over 54,000 employees has been approved by BSNL.” He said as per TRAI report the total market share of BSNL is 10.72 per cent as on March 31, 2019, including 9.96 per cent in mobile wireless technology. “However, stiff competition in mobile segment, high employee cost and absence of 4G services (except in few places for Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited) in the data-centric telecom market is adversely affecting the competitive strength of BSNL,” he said.last_img read more

Housing Scheme 2019 DDA all set for draw of lots on Tuesday

first_imgNew Delhi: Preparations are underway at the Vikas Sadan here for the draw of lots for allotment of flats to applicants under the DDA’S Housing Scheme 2019 slated to be held on July 23, officials said on Monday. The scheme, which ended on June 10, is for sale of nearly 18,000 newly-built flats in Delhi’s Vasant Kunj and Narela residential areas, for which the DDA has received about 50,000 applications. “The draw of lots for the scheme will be held on July 23 and begin at 12 noon, and the process will be streamed live on the web through the DDA website,” a senior DDA official said. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder All preparations are being made for the randomised computer-based draw of lots for the scheme, he said. Interested applicants can also visit the DDA headquarters at Vikas Sadan at INA to watch the proceedings at Nagarik Suvidha Kendra, he added. The DDA Housing Scheme 2019 was launched on March 25, offering flats across four categories. The deadline for application was extended by a month till June 10, after getting a lukewarm response. The earlier deadline was May 10. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchings “As many as 17,922 flats are on offer in four categories — HIG, MIG, LIG and EWS,” a senior DDA official had earlier said. The flats available in these categories are – 488 (HIG), 1,555 (MIG), 8,383 (LIG) and 7,496 (EWS). For the economically weaker section (EWS) category, the application fee was fixed at Rs 25,000, for the LIG category it was Rs 1 lakh and for MIG and HIG flats Rs 2 lakh. DDA’s vice-chairman Tarun Kapoor had on June 11 attributed the poor response by applicants to bulk of the flats being located in Narela area in outer Delhi, among other factors. Recently, the DDA had approved a proposal to reduce cost of EWS flats in Narela, part of the online Housing Scheme 2019, “by up to 40 per cent of the construction cost”. The modified rates would apply to allottees of the current scheme. In case of left over flats, it would be re-advertised soon at reduced rates. This will help in making these flats at concessional rates to economically weaker section, it had said.last_img read more

Chief Canadian NAFTA negotiator not expecting progress on auto content rules

first_imgOTTAWA – Despite tough talk from the U.S. about the job-killing impact of NAFTA on its automotive sector, Canada’s chief negotiator isn’t expecting to see a detailed American proposal on the matter during the latest round of talks to rewrite the continental trade pact.Rules of origin will be “a subject for discussion but we’re not expecting to see anything radically new at this point,” Steve Verheul said Saturday.Verheul made the comment as he arrived for the start of the third round of negotiations, the first at which Canada is playing host.Concern has been mounting among trade experts that the year-end deadline for revamping NAFTA will be impossible to meet if negotiators don’t start during this round to confront some of the most contentious issues, rules of origin prime among them.Asked if he expects anything radically different on any file, Verheul said: “We’ll really have to see. It’s too early, I’m just walking in now.”Under NAFTA’s current rules of origin, vehicles must have at least 62.5 per cent North American content to qualify for duty-free movement between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.At the opening round of negotiations in Washington last month, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer pronounced that the North American content requirement must be raised and a specific American content requirement must be added, along with a way to verify that content.But the U.S. has yet to provide any details.Reports in the U.S. suggest the Americans are looking at raising the North American content to more than 70 per cent and adding a specific U.S. content requirement of anywhere from 35 to 50 per cent.They are also looking to add steel and electronics, not currently covered by NAFTA, to the list of auto parts whose origin must be traced and accounted for under the content requirement.On the eve of the third round, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross published a column in which he blasted NAFTA for allowing outside countries to provide parts for vehicles that aren’t covered by the content requirement — likely an allusion to the rapidly increasing amount of electronic components which are primarily produced in China, Japan and Germany.He cited a new study which found the American content of manufactured goods, specifically autos, imported from Canada and Mexico has dropped “significantly” since NAFTA went into effect in 1994.“If we don’t fix the rules of origin, negotiations on the rest of the agreement will fail to meaningfully shift the trade imbalance,” Ross wrote.“Our nation’s ballooning trade deficit has gutted American manufacturing, killed jobs and sapped our wealth.”For all that, Verheul’s comments suggest the Americans still aren’t ready to show their hand.Canadian officials believe resolving American concerns about the exodus of automotive jobs to low-wage Mexico is the key to staving off U.S. President Donald Trump’s threat to rip up NAFTA.But while the Americans are focusing on the content requirement to remedy the problem, Canadian officials believe it would be more effective to set more stringent labour and environmental standards, which would raise wages and production costs in Mexico to levels closer to those in Canada and the U.S.Verheul said it’s “doubtful” negotiators will be able to sign off on the environment chapter during this round, which an American official had earlier suggested was possible.last_img read more

Lebanon UN forces aid work hampered as Israel denies consent for convoy

As high intensity exchanges between Hizbollah and the Israeli Defences Force (IDF) continued today, the United Nations Interim Force Lebanon (UNFIL) said it has been unable to distribute food and undertake other emergency work in its western area of operations for the past three days because Israel has denied consent.But UNFIL did provide a limited supply of fuel for water pumping in the village of Rmeich today, according to an update released in Naqoura.Among other incidents, two artillery rounds from the Israeli side hit directly inside a UNIFIL position in the area of At Tiri yesterday evening, causing extensive material damage, but no casualties, while Hizbollah fired rockets from the vicinity of UN positions in At Tiri and also Tibnin. UNIFIL “strongly protested all the incidents” to the Lebanese and Israeli authorities respectively.Almost 20 UN positions, including the UNIFIL headquarters in Naqoura, are currently in areas where the IDF operates inside Lebanese territory. Their resupply has been affected by intensive shelling and ground exchanges in the area. In particular, UNIFIL forward positions in the eastern sector are facing critical shortages of fuel, and the ability to re-supply them in the next 48 hours is vital to maintaining these positions.The update said “a humanitarian convoy to distribute food in the villages in the western sector, and other humanitarian activities planned by UNIFIL, could not proceed for the last three days due to the denial of consent by the IDF.”“Around 175 Lebanese civilians remain stranded in the Hula village, and the efforts to relocate them by the Red Cross are still ongoing.”UNIFIL also said the IDF had not responded to repeated requests to reopen the road between Tyre and Beirut by putting up another provisional bridge over the Litani River, but confirmed that “any movement of vehicles south of the Litani River is prohibited, with the exception of UNIFIL and Red Cross vehicles. The IDF may target all other vehicles.” read more

South Sudan Ban to put in place measures to improve UN Missions

The special investigation commissioned by the Secretary-General, led by a retired UN peacekeeper, Major General Patrick Cammaert, found that “UNMISS did not respond effectively to the violence due to an overall lack of leadership, preparedness and integration among the various components of the mission” and that “command and control arrangements were inadequate, while peacekeepers maintained a risk-averse posture,” the statement said.“These factors,” it added, “contributed to the failure of UNMISS to respond to the attack by Government soldiers on the Terrain camp on 11 July and protect civilians under threat.” The special investigation was unable to verify allegations that peacekeepers failed to respond to acts of sexual violence committed directly in front of them on 17 and 18 July, the spokesman said.Noting that the Secretary-General has studied the recommendations made by the special investigation, the statement highlighted that Mr. Ban “will ensure that the necessary steps are taken to enable UNMISS to protect civilians more effectively, including through greater accountability of the mission’s civilian and uniformed leadership.”According to the report, UNMISS faced an extremely challenging set of circumstances and was caught in the crossfire of an active and particularly violent conflict.The report notes that during the three days of fighting, according to some conservative estimates, at least 73 people were killed, including more than 20 internally displaced persons in the PoC sites. Two peacekeepers were killed and several more were injured. In addition, 182 buildings in the UN House compound were struck by bullets, mortars and rocket propelled grenades. The head of an independent special investigation into the violence in Juba, South Sudan, in July 2016, and the response of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) has called for proper training of peacekeeping forces prior to their deployment, in order to avoid such incidents.“[Mr. Ban] reiterates his outrage over the acts of violence committed in Juba in July and the continuing betrayal of the people of South Sudan by too many of its leaders,” said the statement. The statement went on to note that the Secretary-General recognizes that UNMISS has saved hundreds of thousands of lives over the past three years, including in its PoC sites, and commends the Mission’s personnel for their dedication. “He is, nonetheless, alarmed by the serious shortcomings identified by the special investigation, which were evident in the mission’s failure to fully implement its mandate to protect civilians and UN staff during the fighting,” it said. South Sudan has faced ongoing challenges since a political face-off between Mr. Kiir and Mr. Machar erupted into full blown conflict in December 2013. The crisis has produced one of the world’s worst displacement situations with immense suffering for civilians.Despite the August 2015 peace agreement that formally ended the war, conflict and instability have also spread to previously unaffected areas in the Greater Equatoria and Greater Bahr-El-Ghazal regions of South Sudan. UN RadioRetired Major General Patrick Cammaert spoke to UN Radio about the findings while reflecting on the chaotic and tragic scenes. Displaced civilians leave the UNMISS (UN Mission in South Sudan) base in UN House, after seeking refuge at the base in the wake of recent fresh clashes in Juba between soldiers of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) and the SPLA in Opposition (SPLA-IO). UN Photo/Eric Kanalstein According to a statement from Mr. Ban’s spokesperson, the UN chief received the report (summarized here) of the Independent Special Investigation, and is “deeply distressed” by its findings, including that UNMISS did not respond effectively to the violence, which erupted in early July, due to an overall lack of leadership, preparedness and integration among the various components of the mission. Commenting on the report at the daily press briefing at UN Headquarters, Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric announced that in line with the report’s recommendations, the Secretary-General has asked for the “immediate replacement” of UNMISS Force Commander, Lt. Gen. Johnson Mogoa Kimani Ondieki.The incidents occurred during a spate of clashes between rival forces – the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) loyal to President Salva Kiir and the SPLA in Opposition backing First Vice-President Riek Machar – that broke out in and around Juba, on 7 July, close to the fifth anniversary of the country’s independence. UN compounds and UNMISS-managed civilian protection sites were attacked during the fighting and, according to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, a separate preliminary UN investigation into the violence and its aftermath revealed that Government security forces carried out killings and rapes, and looted and destroyed properties. read more

In Saudi Arabia UN envoy seeks to further initiatives to end violence

These discussions took place in Saudi Arabia’s capital, Riyadh, where UN Special Envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed wrapped up a four-day visit Wednesday. In 2015, Yemen plunged into civil war between Houthi rebels and supporters of Yemen’s internationally recognized Government. “We are currently exploring significant steps that each side can take to restore confidence and move towards a viable negotiated settlement,” said Mr. Ould Cheikh Ahmed at the end of the visit during which he met with Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and Foreign Minister Abdel-Malek Al-Mikhlafi. The UN envoy added that these steps include a renewed ceasefire, confidence-building measures to alleviate the humanitarian suffering and the return to the negotiation table towards a comprehensive peace agreement. During the visit, the UN envoy also met with Saudi officials, including Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir and Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs David Satterfield, as well as Gulf Cooperation Council Secretary General Abdullatif Al-Zayyani. “This large-scale suffering must end. I appeal to the parties to make the necessary concessions that can help paving the way for a long-lasting peace, and to the international community to ensure unity of purpose in supporting these much-needed initiatives,” Mr. Ould Cheikh Ahmed said. read more

Braveheart plot query Bangkok massage haggling and Strictly updates the oddest Foreign

Hello – is that the British Embassy? Good. I’ve got some questions about Braveheart. Between January and November, the Foreign Office received more than 330,000 calls from British citizens overseas desperate for help. Some 5,000 had been arrested in a foreign country and touching base to try and get themselves out of the bleak hole they found themselves in. Others – around 3,400 – had ended up in hospital and were scrambling for a steer on how to avoid drowning in hospital bills. –– ADVERTISEMENT ––But for some Britons overseas, there were much more pressing issues. Vampires, Strictly Come Dancing and a Bangkok massage parlour have all featured in the oddest requests made to embassy officials.The Foreign Office (FCO) has revealed some of the more unusual appeals for help it has received this year, including a man asking if vampires were in Poland because a woman he was due to meet for a date asked for his blood type.A caller from the USA asked which contestant had been voted off Strictly the previous night, someone in the Netherlands had questions about the plot of Braveheart while a man in Argentina requested a list of women who he might be able to marry.Another man in Thailand wanted help as he argued against paying for a massage after falling asleep during it.Talk of the British High Commission in New Delhi selling vegetarian sausages prompted one man to call and someone in the Canary Islands wanted help persuading his hotel to give him a new room after a stray cat had “broken into” his original one and urinated on his bed.An FCO spokesman said: “I can regretfully confirm that the Foreign Office isn’t able to offer advice on vampires, rogue stray cats or Strictly contestants. And our capacity to deploy veggie sausages remains sadly lacking.”But in all seriousness, getting into trouble abroad can be daunting and upsetting.”If you find yourself in an emergency in another country, contact the nearest British Embassy, High Commission or Consulate and our consular staff will do everything they can to help.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Fraikin BM Granollers win at “Blaugrana” after 25 years! The Russian powerhouse have qualified for the Women’s EHF Final 4 for the first time ever after an aggregate result of 63-51 over FTC Rail Cargo Hungaria. The Russians had won the first leg 29-31 in Hungary and today, on home soil, they sealed the pass to Budapest after a 32-22 triumph.Rostov Don will finally be present in the Papp László Sportárena in Budapest next month. After having fallen in quarter-finals against the eventual champions CSM Bucuresti two seasons ago, and having missed Europe’s top competition last year, the commanded by Frederic Bougeant have booked their place in the semifinals after a dominant victory by 32-22 at home, which was backed up by the away win, a week ago. The two goal difference in Budapest made believe that FTC’s chances were still alive, however, Rostov Don quickly showed that they were not willing to suffer. After 19’, the visitors managed to reduce a 5 goal difference to only 3 (13-10), but the last minutes of the first half saw the locals stretch the gap again and finish the first period with +8: 20-12.Despite FTC’s efforts, the goal difference was just too much for them to turn around and on the second half, it only broadened (25-15 after 12’). After a penalty shot that hit goalkeeper Greta Hafdi on the face, Montenegrin right back Katarina Bulatovic was sent off with a red card (the graph on the stream showed a blue card).
